A 74-year-old Man Burnt To Death By Fire While Clearing The Field

A 74-year-old man was burnt to death by a fire while clearing the field in Insiza, about 82 km northeast of Bulawayo.

The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) said the unnamed man died on the spot. In a report seen by Pindula News, police said:

The ZRP reports a sad incident in which a 74-year-old man died on the spot after he was engulfed by the fire whilst clearing the field on 12/09/22 at Lochard Village 05, Insiza.

Fire incidents have been on the rise lately with a Somabhula farmer losing three brand new tractors and other farm equipment in an inferno last week.

The Meteorological Services Department (MSD) of Zimbabwe yesterday warned that the country was already in a FIRE SEASON characterised by Dry and windy conditions which exacerbate the spread of veldt fires.

MSD also reminded farmers and members of the public that while land preparations are vital at this stage, it is illegal to start veld fires and those engaged in such on-farm and other outdoor activities will be violating the laws.
